Best Friends

I actually did a paper layout! It's been months! And it felt so good :)

One of my friends invited me to her house to scrapbook. She hasn't scrapbooked since the last time we were together (almost a year ago) so it's been months for her as well ... and it was nice to see her again.

Here's my layout:I didn't take a whole lot of time to prepare. I just grabbed my box of photos and threw several paper packs and embellishments in a bin and went over. I figured I'd just work it all out when I got there ... and I did. I spent over an hour just going through photos and reliving memories. Then I had to choose which ones to scrap. These ones of the kids last May were really cute and the colors matched perfectly some of the paper I had brought with me. So, I laid them out, decided on my design and executed it! Moniqua was so proud of me because I actually did something. Usually when we get together, I take forever and won't do anything because it might not be perfect. It isn't perfect, but I did it!
As Moniqua often says, if I wanted it to be perfect I would have bought it in a store. This is homemade :)

Everything I used is from the Making Memories Whimsy line except for the Orange and Pink cardstock which Moniqua gave me from her CTMH stash and the American Crafts thickers for the title.

I think I like the placement of the embellishments. I don't know if I like the stickers (some are crooked). But, it's there and it's cute! I'm so happy!

I hope you like it!
